THE?CURTAIN of the National Cultural Foundation performing arts season came down with the annual gala at the gymnasium, Garfield Sobers Complex on Sunday evening.
From as early as 4:30 p.m. the spacious car parks at the St Michael facility started to fill out and by the middle of show-time, the gymnasium with a seating capacity of 5 000 was boasting of a sold out crowd.
The gala, billed as a showcase of the crème de la crème of the season, was graced with the presence of Governor-General Sir Elliott Belgrave.
He presented Cy Hutchinson with the Governor-General’s Award of Excellence for most outstanding piece by a professional called Careened II in the discipline of visual arts.
Sir Elliott also handed over the Governor-General’s Award of Excellence for most outstanding dish by a professional in the discipline of culinary arts to Jason Joseph.
Both awards comprise a trophy and $7500. (JS)
